My front downspout is not long enough and currently all the water just comes back and rests between my sloped sidewalk and the graded edge of my house.
I'm thinking I can move the downspout so that it goes over my sloped sidewalk and I can walk under it like so.
I'm thinking I'll get some sort of L shaped bracer for the part coming off the house but I'm not sure how I would add supports for the part that comes down on the yard. How would I brace a freestanding downspout?
I'm currently planning on having the house dug up in the spring and having it wrapped to reduce water seepage so I'm not looking at fixing the sidewalk or implementing the underground stuff at the moment as I'll just have to do it again later.
My other option is just making my downspout really long but I would like to use the sidewalk. Perhaps there is another option I may be missing.
